Re: Joe Guzzardi's Comment On The Saturday Forum Letter: A CA Reader Says Giuliani Is Well Regarded By Americans Who Watched Him During 9/11
In response to the California reader's letter about his column, "Dubya: Worst President Ever. And Immigration Is A Reason," Guzzardi wrote:
"Bush has trivialized 9/11 by his incessant references to it in his two presidential campaigns..."
President Bush has conducted one presidential campaign since 9/11, not two.
If Bush could violate the Constitution yet again and run for a third term, and thereby conduct two post-9/11 campaigns, perhaps he would.
But he hasn't yet! So perhaps Guzzardi meant to only make reference to Bush's second presidential campaign rather than both.
Joe Guzzardi replies: Since each day with Bush in office seems like a month to me, perhaps that's the reason for my error. What I should have said is that during the post-9/11 balance of Bush's first term and all of his second, he has mentioned 9/11 so many times that its significance has lost the impact it rightly deserves.
